New York City, or better known as the big apple, is one of the world’s most iconic cities. It has a vibe that some other places just can’t get anywhere close to. It’s vibrant and busy but there is so much more to this place than the skyscraper buildings and Statue Of Liberty. When you travel to New York you literally feel like you’ve stepped into a whole new world. So here are a few things to love about New York. (Image by Kolitha De Silva)
It’s fair to say that NYC has it’s fair share of shops. From designer high end boutiques to floors of department store heaven. There is something for everyone. The famous New York fashion week takes place every year in February and September. It lasts 7-9 days in total and see’s designers from all over the world put on shows in this fashionable city. It forms part of the “big four” which includes places like Paris, Milan and London. It is among great company. It’s easy to be inspired by the catwalk shows. But all you have to do is see the New Yorkers put on their fashion show each day on the sidewalk. Fashion is a big party of this city.
The beauty of NYC can be interpreted in many ways. It can go alongside the fashion where makeup trends are set. Big advertisements for some of the biggest skincare products and beautiful models are displayed at Times Square. But also, there can be a beauty to the city itself. Nestled in the center is Central Park. A vast green open space. Full of wonder and beauty. It can seem impossible to find quiet, but in Central Park, that’s achievable. The architecture is phenomenal. The design of some of the buildings is world class. It depends on how you interpret beauty, but there is a lot to capture the mind.
The not so obvious things to do
Of course, there is the usual Empire State Building or Rockefeller centre to visit but what about the other things. What about visiting Long Island or taking a charter bus rental from NYC to Boston. Famous for the Cheers show. Not many people realize how close these two places are. If you look closely enough, there is something to do on every corner. What many people forget to experience is Broadway. It is 13 miles long in the borough of Manhattan. It was completed in 1930 and still sees some of the most famous actors take to the stage there.

The eating and drinking
Whatever your preferred culinary flair is, NYC has something to offer. Food is big business in this place. It brings people together. It’s a chance to socialize and try new things. From Italian and Mexican to good old fashioned American burgers. You will be spoilt for choice. Whether you are a big drinker or not, you have to experience some of the fabulous bars available. The atmosphere can be electric at times.
The general vibe
The vibe of this city is busy and fast paced. But don’t let that put you off. It’s also full of sweet and solitude areas. All adding to the wonder of this vibrant city.
Bursting with positivity NYC has something for everyone. It can feel like the wonder of opportunity is waiting for you to answer.
